Ever since they first emerged with their stunning self-released debut LP 'When Man Fails You' in 2015, artist and producer Sean Bowie aka Yves Tumor has always looked to carve their own direction within the wider mainstream. Regularly adopting a vast and explorative approach to their genre and sound, they have spent the last few years building a wonderfully diverse array of release that break conventions and stereotypes as often as possible. And after the enormous response to their dynamic 2020 release 'Heaven To A Tortured Mind', they are back with their eagerly-awaited fifth studio album 'Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)', a record that builds upon that adventurous ideal.
From the very start, 'Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)' looks to create this enigmatic appeal to its sound. With almost every track embarking on its own unique path throughout, there is very little that ties this new full-length together, but still somehow comes out as an extremely cohesive listen. Continuing to explore more of that riveting aesthetic they have produced in the past, this new collection makes for a wonderfully rich and sweeping listen that leaves you anxiously waiting for what is right around the corner at every turn.
Yves Tumor has always had a strong reputation for eclectic releases, but 'Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)' feels like another league altogether. Finding and developing such a confident grasp over their sound from start to finish, it is extremely hard not to find something to love on here.
